Thank you ever so much, dear Thesevenseas! :) Your sweet, friendly smile just made my day. Warmly, → Clementina [ Scribble ] 03:30, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

Kŭmgangsan[edit]

There is inconsistency in Kŭmgangsan in using "Kŭmgangsan" and "Geumgangsan". What do you advise? And for good measure:

Protector of Wiki (talk) 04:17, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

It's probably best to go with the article's title, unless if you wish to move it to Geumgangsan. Thanks for the kitten. → Clementina [ Scribble ] 08:22, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
I appreciate your advice. Have you ever considered becoming a mod here, since you are one at Simple? Anyhow, thanks for the work you do here. May Jesus be with you! Protector of Wiki (talk) 08:32, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

<-An admin here? Oh, no, I don't know anything about being a sysop here, and I wouldn't dream of becoming one anytime soon. It's very different from Simple, and I only just started becoming active here a few days ago. Thanks for suggesting it, though. Kindly, → Clementina [ Scribble ] 10:37, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

Heh. Less than a hundred edits in and you've already been asked about adminship- shows how excellent you are. But you are correct, this is a rather different environment to simple, and I suspect your thoughtful, unassuming temperament would be less appreciated here simply because it disagrees somewhat with what adminship involves here. Watching this page now, you know where to find me should you need a second pair of eyes for anything. Cheers. sonia 11:17, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
Thank you, dear Sonia, I really appreciate your kind words, and still more, the manner in which they were offered. :) I don't know if I'll ever get as attached to en as I am to Simple's quiet charm, but I'd still like to help out where I can. Love, → Clementina [ Scribble ] 12:04, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
You can find me just as easily if you need a third pair as well. Never underestimate how attached you can get to enwiki, you never know, you might find yourself more attached to this wiki than simplewiki! It is definitely tougher to get adminship here than it is to on simplewiki, but it is definitely possible. In fact, I believe Sonia maybe running for adminship soon, just need to keep watching! Also, I believe you forgot to substitute the template here, that's why the signature didn't come out properly! Set Sail For The Seven Seas 270° 17' 15" NET 18:01, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
Wow, thanks, Thesevenseas. :) Enwiki does look quite overwhelming and fast-paced at first, but with such dedicated and friendly users like you and Sonia, I can see why it's so popular. And Sonia, if you ever do make this a blue link, do tell me so I can support! ;) Cheerfully, → Clementina [ Scribble ] 00:35, 11 September 2010 (UTC)
Face-surprise.svg Please, by all the good there is in this world, don't watchlist my (nonexistent) RfA. I managed to get myself grouped as a "rouge admin" here without even being an administrator; I really don't want the drama that goes along with being one. Perfectly happy to potter around wherever I wish making little changes without having to block/delete/protect. sonia 03:23, 12 September 2010 (UTC)
Not all admins have this drama, only the lucky/unlucky ones. Naturally, those who get the drama will be the ones you've heard about. However, there are even more "quiet" admins, which no-one's heard of, especially as there are 1,393 admins here. They just get on with their duties and avoid the wikidrama. You can find them here. Most of them you won't have heard of. Set Sail For The Seven Seas 327° 33' 45" NET 21:50, 12 September 2010 (UTC)
Aye, and I respect both. Anyway, sorry Clem for clogging up your talk page with my insecurities. (Here's a "policy" simplewiki doesn't have that you might find interesting...:P) sonia 00:35, 13 September 2010 (UTC)
I came across that one a while ago, though I believe our good friend La Pianista would find it a lot more interesting than I would! Set Sail For The Seven Seas 27° 42' 0" NET 01:50, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

Wow, those diffs were really... interesting, Thesevenseas. ;) @Sonia: Yeah, I love that page. It was really funny. :PClementina [ Scribble ] 03:09, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

Indeed, La Pianista does like self depreciating humour! Set Sail For The Seven Seas 275° 36' 0" NET 18:22, 13 September 2010 (UTC)
Indeed so. There's also the lighter side of enwiki, which can prove to be quite entertaining! Set Sail For The Seven Seas 286° 28' 15" NET 19:05, 11 September 2010 (UTC)
You forgot this and this. sonia 03:23, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

<- That's too bad: your eloquence, great intelligence, compassion, and sense of humor would make you a great admin, Sonia. And what's a wiki without some drama to spice things up? :P You two show me such different sides of en - the amazingly bold and amusing side, and the dangerous and scary side. ;) As of now, I'm so bewildered by the enormity of this project that I can scarcely see either, just a trembling wilderness, but I must admit that I'm having fun here already, thanks to both of you. :) Love, → Clementina [ Scribble ] 08:26, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

That'll be the best way to go about it. Entering the wilderness not knowing what's out there, where you are or what to expect, in the true spirit of adventure. After all, it is only when you're truly lost can you find what cannot be found! It does also mean there's a lot of treasures hidden deep in the archives or revision histories. One of these is funny vandalism, which tend to be hidden around the place. There's also the lolcats, some of which are quite entertaining! Set Sail For The Seven Seas 336° 34' 45" NET 22:26, 12 September 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for the encouragement and kind words, dear Thesevenseas. :) Hmm, I wouldn't call funny vandalism "hidden treasure" though. ;) Warmly, → Clementina [ Scribble ] 03:09, 13 September 2010 (UTC)
There are quite a few others about. There are even wikisongs, one of which Sonia wrote! Set Sail For The Seven Seas 276° 33' 0" NET 18:26, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

Update[edit]

Moved the GA Review to its dedicated separate subpage, at Talk:Typewriter in the Sky/GA1. Also, placed an update regarding further work done on the article to address suggestions you had raised. :) Cheers, -- Cirt (talk) 17:50, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

Much better, thanks. :) It's my first time reviewing an article here, so I hope I didn't mess up anything. I've also responded on the talk page. Warmly, → Clementina [ Scribble ] 00:41, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
Replied at that subpage. :) -- Cirt (talk) 00:52, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
Another update - all of the article's subsections have been expanded upon further with additional sourced info from cited sources. Hopefully this is sufficient. However, still in the process of doing some additional research. -- Cirt (talk) 18:43, 22 September 2010 (UTC)

(<-) Thank you, dear Cirt: I'm sorry for the late response, as I've been away for a few days. I've replied at the talk page there. :) → Clementina [ Scribble ] 05:43, 23 September 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, additional updates there. ;) -- Cirt (talk) 02:21, 24 September 2010 (UTC)
Great suggestions, very helpful, thank you! These are all Yes check.svg Done. ;) -- Cirt (talk) 03:18, 24 September 2010 (UTC)
Thank you, but curious, per your comment [1], does this mean you will pass it as GA and list it at WP:GA? -- Cirt (talk) 05:05, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

<- Hi Cirt. To be honest, this is my first GA review, so I'm not really sure what to do. I was the initial reviewer, so if I'm satisfied (because I am :)), does that mean I can simply pass it as a GA? → Clementina [ Scribble ] 05:09, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

Yes, that is exactly what it means. ;) You just have to follow the simple instructions at WP:GAN, to pass it. -- Cirt (talk) 05:11, 24 September 2010 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done I hope I did it correctly. :p → Clementina [ Scribble ] 05:22, 24 September 2010 (UTC)
Great! Thanks again, -- Cirt (talk) 05:23, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

It was a pleasure working with you, Cirt though you did most of the "work" ;) and I'm glad it passed. :) Sincerely, → Clementina [ Scribble ] 05:45, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

Thanks very much for the kind words! :) -- Cirt (talk) 05:28, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

Twinkle and Watchlist[edit]

Hi Clementina!

Just saw your remark at WP:PERM/R. I faced the same problem - the solution is there: Wikipedia_talk:Twinkle#Watchlist... Works like a charm (though not right now, because Twinkle is down: Wikipedia_talk:Twinkle#Not_loading). Alfie↑↓© 00:58, 17 September 2010 (UTC)

Edit: Twinkle is up again. :-) Alfie↑↓© 01:48, 17 September 2010 (UTC)
Thank you very much, Alfie! :) This makes cleaning up much easier—I've been wondering in vain how to disable that for ages, not only here but on the Simple English Wikipedia as well. It works perfectly, thanks once more! Sincerely, → Clementina [ Scribble ] 02:08, 17 September 2010 (UTC)
Welcome! "[...] for ages" is the right term. If found the solution myself just a couple of weeks ago somewhere burried in the depths of an archive. ;-) Enjoy & happy editing! Alfie↑↓© 11:26, 17 September 2010 (UTC)

Ridiculously late[edit]

Hi Clementia :) This thanks comes ridiculously late :) but it comes with much sincerity. This is a note to communicate my thanks for your voting in my RfA. Astoundingly, and to the shock of everybody, the RfA passed :):) See you around. Sincerely. Wifione ....... Leave a message 15:35, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Better late than never! Thank you for the thanks. ;) I'm very happy you passed, and I do hope I'll see you around too. Congratulations or condolences on your RFA! Regards, → Clementina [ Scribble ] 05:43, 23 September 2010 (UTC)

Re: Cookies[edit]

I'm glad you enjoyed my cookie, dear James—you more than deserved it. :) Sincerely, Clementina talk 10:58, 23 September 2010 (UTC)

If you're going to spam...[edit]

You could spam my page while you're at it. :P Might be a tad more informative for the active editors here. (That said, I really don't like seeing the orange bar misappropriated since it already freaks me out when it's legit, although I have to admit it works.) sonia 05:52, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

Good idea, and Yes check.svg Done. You're right, I always jump when I see orange bars, and it makes me get quite annoyed when I click on it and it goes to articles like practical joke or "got you"! And in this case, it makes my talk page look oh so ugly. :P But this is all for a good cause.. ;) → Clementina [ Scribble ] 06:00, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

to make it official...[edit]

AFC-Logo.png

Hi, and welcome to WikiProject Articles for creation! We are a group of editors who work together on the Articles for creation and Images for upload pages.

A few tips that you might find helpful:

  • Please take time to fully read the reviewers' instructions before reviewing submissions.
  • The project's discussion board is the best place to ask for help or advice. You might like to watchlist this page, and you are encouraged to take part in any discussion that comes up.

Once again, welcome to the project. sonia 00:48, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Thank you, dear Sonia! :) This project, though it's a little frightening in its complexity, certainly looks both interesting and worthwhile, so I'll try to help where I can. → Clementina [ Scribble ] 13:40, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the salad![edit]

Dear Clementina, thanks for the salad. It was delicious and much appreciated. Susfele (talk) 03:00, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

No, thank you for cleaning up the vandalism on my talk page. :) I know how annoying it is to manually remove nonsense, and I feel very grateful for it. Thanks once again, → Clementina [ Scribble ] 03:03, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

Terry Buck[edit]

Hello Clementina,
If you havent found it yet, there is more 'raw' material on Buck [here], if you wish to use it. Regards - 220.101 talk\Contribs 13:40, 29 September 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for the helpful link, 220.101.28.25 (wow, that's a long, um, username)! ;) I never met an IP with a userpage before. :) I was actually supposed to help Sonia with it, but I couldn't keep my promise because I had to go unexpectedly to church (sorry, Sonia). However, I'll see if I can help with anything in the article today and just hope I don't mess it up. Love, → Clementina [ Scribble ] 01:48, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
You've done fine, Clem. I assume you're using Cite4wiki or something for your references? When citing news articles I tend to use RefToolbar, it is slower but fills out more information. (You need to help me convince 220.101 to get an account!) By the way: are you free to talk for a few minutes? sonia 01:55, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
I don't know how I can convince 220.101 to get an account if your eloquence fails. :) Yeah, I usually use Cite4wiki for websites, because computers confuse me. As for talking...I'd love to, but I think it'll have to be after one hour. It's actually my study time right now. Caught red-handed! :o /me scurries back to workClementina [ Scribble ] 02:02, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
Strike that - talking with Sonia is a resistless pleasure! I ended up having a nice chat with her anyway. → Clementina [ Scribble ] 02:26, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

Update[edit]

Addressed your helpful suggestions, at Talk:My Life in Orange/GA1. ;) Thanks again, -- Cirt (talk) 04:48, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done, again. :P -- Cirt (talk) 05:16, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
Promoted - wonderful work, Cirt! :) Sincerely, → Clementina [ Scribble ] 05:25, 30 September 2010 (UTC)
Thank you! :) -- Cirt (talk) 05:28, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

Re: Ecuador Crisis article[edit]

I indeed did give a reason, please don't send me irrelevant form messages unless you can be more specific. 24.215.174.233 (talk) 01:38, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

My sincere apologies for any inconvenience - I see you did specify a reason in the talk page, and it seems to have been made in good faith. Next time, though, please include your reason in the edit summary (for example, you could have written "per reason on talk page"). This helps people who are checking on the recent changes for vandalism know the reason for your removal. Best, Clementina talk 01:48, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

Re: Welcome[edit]

Sorry for the late reply and thanks a lot for the warm welcome. I won't be much of assistance to this site for a while since I'm occupied with other wikis on the web but it is really nice you left me a message. Also, thanks a lot for the tip as well as the links. --Montechristo95 talkcontribs 20:14, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for your thanks. ;) It's not often one gets a reply for a welcome. I certainly hope you'll find editing Wikipedia enjoyable and have fun here. Very sincerely, Clementina talk 00:41, 8 October 2010 (UTC)
Yeah you can bet I hope that too. Well what I will be doing here mostly is patrolling the recent changes page until I find a project to work on. And btw I really like your habbit of replying to messages on the same page they have been posted. It greately helps keeping conversations together. Unfortunately, I carry the awful habbit of replying to messages with the "RE:" style from other wikis around the web. --Montechristo95 talkcontribs 09:15, 8 October 2010 (UTC)
That's great, I'm sure you'll do excellently here, as you seem to already have some experience with other wikis. :) Yes, I do like to try to keep conversations in the same place, but I'm afraid that's more selfish than yours, as it denies others the pleasure of seeing a cheery orange bar pop up. ;) Users use both methods on Wikipedia, though replying on the same page is (I think) more common. Best wishes, Clementina talk 10:22, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

Welcoming IPs[edit]

Hi Clementina. Just note that for welcoming IPs, you must use {{subst:welcome-anon}}. Cheers. -Porchcrop (talk|contributions) 00:58, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

Hi Porchcrop, thanks for the note! :) I do generally use that template, but for edits such as this, I wasn't quite sure if it was a test or a good faith mistake in thinking that the Dursleys took care of Harry from when he was one year old, so instead of welcome-anon (which would say "thank you for your contributions"), I decided to use {{welcome0}} instead. :) Love, Clementina talk 01:03, 8 October 2010 (UTC)
Ok. But Template:Welcome0 is for users that have created their userpage but have not contributed elsewhere. How about use {{welcomelaws}}. -Porchcrop (talk|contributions) 01:28, 8 October 2010 (UTC)
Great idea, thanks for the helpful link! :) Didn't know it existed. Best, Clementina talk 01:30, 8 October 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia Ambassador Program is looking for new Online Ambassadors[edit]

Hi! I noticed your activity as a Good Article reviewer, and wanted to let you know about the Wikipedia Ambassador Program, and specifically the role of Online Ambassador. We're looking for friendly Wikipedians who are good at reviewing articles and giving feedback to serve as mentors for students who are assigned to write for Wikipedia in their classes.

If you're interested, I encourage you to take a look at the Online Ambassador guidelines; the "mentorship process" describes roughly what will be expected of mentors in the coming term. If that's something you want to do, please apply!

You can find instructions for applying at WP:ONLINE. The main things we're looking for in Online Ambassadors are friendliness, regular activity (since mentorship is a commitment that spans several months), and the ability to give detailed, substantive feedback on articles (both short new articles, and longer, more mature ones).

I hope to hear from you soon.--Sage Ross - Online Facilitator, Wikimedia Foundation (talk) 03:04, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

Hi, Sage Ross! :) Thanks a lot for the kind message, but though I think I'm friendly most of the time (on the Internet, at least Face-tongue.svg), I have neither the ability nor the regular activity needed to be an ambassador. I'm most likely going to be especially busy in the following few months and my activity on the English Wikipedia will be little or nothing, so I'm afraid I'll have to decline. Thanks once again, though, and hopefully one day I'll be worthy to help out in that area! :) Clementina talk 12:21, 28 January 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. I look forward to maybe working with you down the road.--Sage Ross - Online Facilitator, Wikimedia Foundation (talk) 14:27, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

If the answer to these questions is yes, then please read the reviewing instructions and donate a little of your time to helping tackle the backlog. You might wish to add {{AFC status}} or {{AfC Defcon}} to your userpage, which will alert you to the number of open submissions.

PS: we have a great AFC helper script at User:Timotheus Canens/afchelper4.js which helps in reviewing in just few edits easily!

We would greatly appreciate your help. Currently, only a small handful of users are reviewing articles. Any help, even if it's just 2 or 3 reviews, it would be extremely beneficial.
